Mike Trout (thumb) will travel with the Angels' on their upcoming road trip to New York and Boston.

That road trip will begin on Tuesday. Trout is expected to resume swinging next week and could begin hitting off a tee. The reigning AL MVP is still holding out hope of playing in next month's All-Star Game. Trout was hitting .337 with 16 homers and 10 steals before he opted for surgery to repair a torn UCL in his left thumb.

Mike Trout (thumb) said Tuesday that he believes he can return before the July 11 All-Star Game.

Trout was given a timetable of 6-8 weeks when he underwent surgery last month for a torn UCL in his left thumb, and July 11 falls one day short of the six-week mark from that May 31 procedure. It seems doable, but there are still many steps in his rehab and the Angels certainly aren't going to allow him to rush the process. At last check Trout was No. 2 in the All-Star balloting among outfielders, behind Yankees phenom Aaron Judge.

Mike Trout underwent successful surgery to repair an ulnar collateral ligament tear in his left thumb on Wednesday.

Trout is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, with the optimistic end of that timetable putting his return close to the All-Star break and the more conservative end of it putting his return some time in early August. There is no real way to "replace" Trout in the lineup, but Cameron Maybin is expected to take the bulk of center field at-bats in his place, with Ben Revere likely to be used mainly in left field.

Mike Trout will have surgery Wednesday to repair an ulnar collateral ligament tear in his left thumb and will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

The non-surgical route could have potentially cut Trout's rehab time roughly in half, but evidently the tear was deemed severe enough that surgery was deemed the best option. It's simply a brutal blow for fantasy owners, as Trout just isn't a guy that can be replaced. As far as the Angels go, they will move Cameron Maybin over to center field and will likely use Ben Revere most of the time in left. They've also called up Eric Young Jr. to provide depth.

Angels placed OF Mike Trout on the 10-day disabled list with a ulnar collateral ligament tear in his left thumb.

Trout suffered the injury when he jammed his hand into the second base bag on a head-first slide on Sunday. It's possible he will undergo surgery, and if he does he's expected to be sidelined for 5-8 weeks. It would be a shorter timetable than that if he doesn't go under the knife, but Jon Morosi of MLB Network hears that it would still be at least a 3-4 week absence in that scenario. It's the first time in Trout's seven-year career that he's landed on the disabled list. Cameron Maybin will slide over to handle center field for the Halos, and Ben Revere should get most of the starts in left field.

Mike Trout will not play Monday, but the Angels are still awaiting MRI results on his left thumb.

They seemed to tip their hand with Eric Young spotted in the clubhouse, but nothing is official in regards to the extent of Trout's injury yet. Obviously, more news on Trout will be available soon.
May 29 - 6:32 PM

Mike Trout will undergo an MRI on Monday on his injured left thumb.

He was diagnosed with a left thumb sprain on Sunday, but the Angels want the additional exam to help determine the severity. No decision will be made on a potential trip to the disabled list until after they get the results of that exam.
May 28 - 5:10 PM

Mike Trout was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Marlins with a left thumb sprain.

He went for precautionary X-rays which ruled out any fractures. The Angels have yet to comment on how much time, if any, he'll miss due to the injury, but it doesn't sound like it should keep him down for long.
May 28 - 4:26 PM

Mike Trout departed Sunday's game versus the Marlins in the sixth inning with a left hand injury.

Trout jammed his hand into the second base bag on a stolen base attempt in the fifth inning. He initially remained in the game after a visit from the trainer but was then removed an inning later. The Angels should have an update on their star outfielder soon. Meanwhile, Trout's fantasy owners will hold their breath.
May 28 - 3:27 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Trout gave the Angels an early lead with his 16th homer of the season in the first inning. He leads the league with those 16 homers, and he's also at the top of the leaderboard in batting average (.342) and runs scored (36), among others. His 36 RBI are an embarrassing fourth in the league, unfortunately.
May 27 - 9:39 PM

Mike Trout doubled twice and scored a run in Wednesday's loss to the Rays.

He doubled in the first inning and rode home on an Albert Pujols dinger. He finished 2-for-4 in the ballgame. Trout is flying well over his stellar career rates in just about every category. He is batting .347/.466/.760 for a 1.266 OPS with 15 home runs, 34 runs scored, 35 RBI and nine stolen bases. The best player in the game keeps getting even better.
May 24 - 10:42 PM

Mike Trout hit his 15th homer and walked Tuesday against the Rays.

May 23 - 10:27 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the Angels' 12-5 rout of the Mets on Sunday.

Trout launched a two-run homer off Mets starter Tommy Milone in the top of the second inning and added an RBI double in the top of the third. The best player in baseball is slashing .350/.466/.757 with 14 home runs, 34 RBI, nine stolen bases, and 31 runs scored in 40 games this season.
May 21 - 4:56 PM

Mike Trout was hitless in two at-bats with a pair of walks, a sacrifice fly, a run scored and two walks in Saturday's game at N.Y. Mets.

Trout has had just three hitless games in 26 outings dating back to April 16. He has picked up the pace in the walks department, posting 10 free passes over his past seven outings. Whether he is getting on base with hits or walks, he is still making things happen. He is cruising along with an amazing .343 average and 1.324 to put smiles on the faces of his fantasy owners most every night.
